Both of my parents died due to complications from Alzheimer’s Disease. There are several other relatives and friends who have also been afflicted, some living, some late. It is heartbreaking to watch as they begin to lose control, and don’t understand what is happening. Then as the disease takes over, the family members are crushed even more as they are no longer recognized by their loved one.
I hope in my lifetime this disease will be eradicated. Great progress has been made in recent research projects towards understanding how the disease progresses. Our support is needed more than ever to continue to fund this research and help those already afflicted.
Although the actual walk event isn't for a few more months (09/27/2009), I hope you will consider a small, albeit an early, donation. You can click on the donor box at the right or click here to be taken to my donation page.
Thank you in advance for your support.
